      Roaring Fork Valley artists are invited to join our Friday afternoon artist gathering for coffee and conversation with the 2021 AAM Artist Fellows.

      Monthly AAM Artist Coffee sessions are our way of providing a little time and plenty of space to get together with AAM Educators and fellow guests to hear your perspectives on art, studio practice, and topics of interest. We’ll discuss what it means to be an artist, especially during this time of social change, as well as share ideas on art education and how to make it more accessible to our community.

      We do what we do because artists make it possible. Please join us in helping shape the dialogue.
